sorry for the bump but the 100% metal case is good for dissipating the heat it is giving off, so far so good. (format is takeing a long time, what you expect from a 1tb drive new)

never checked, but it did get hot, but thats entirely because i got a high performance drive that does get hot. but it never got to a worrying temperature, the case still easily got rid of the heat

I have one of those cases around here some place and love it, doesn't complain about the USB cable I use like my WD external does and it has better times with the same drive compared to my WD drive in the case.
